Ruled out before the start of the tournament as possible winners, the rank outsiders Jamaica, will take on former champions Mexico, in the finals of the CONCACAF Gold Cup at the Lincoln Financial Field starting at 6:30pm local time.

Jamaica has already surpassed their best achievement in previous competitions, when they qualified for the final following their historic 2-1 win over the USA in the semi-finals on Wednesday.

The 'perennial bridesmaid' of world football, the Netherlands, seemed to be down and out but rallied late on to score twice in six minutes and break Mexican hearts. Substitute Klaas Jan Huntelaar replaced his captain Robin van Persie and needed just two critical touches to send Holland to the last eight. The Schalke striker assisted Wesley Sneijder and then converted a penalty in stoppage time.
